NEW Leadership™ Texas Keynote: Senator Wendy Davis

Friday Jun 2, 2017 7:30 PM | Quadrangle Room, Texas Union

The Center for Women's & Gender Studies invites you to the NEW Leadership™ Texas Keynote Event featuring Senator Wendy Davis.

NEW Leadership™ is a national non-partisan program developed by the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University to address the underrepresentation of women in American politics. The six-day residential summer institute educates college women about the important role that politics plays in their lives and encourages them to become effective leaders in the political arena.

NEW Leadership™ Texas brings together college women from across the political spectrum to discuss the roles of women in leadership and politics. The program exposes participants to new ideas and opportunities as they consider their future careers.  

Participants are undergraduate women representing a wide range of socioeconomic, ethnic, racial and educational backgrounds and academic majors. They encourage applications from non-traditional college students, women of color, and students majoring in fields outside political science.
